THREE learners from Grey Junior School have advanced to the quarter-finals of 2017 Nickelodeon’s Genius quiz show.

Christian Davidson, Ethan John and James Smith definitely know their stuff, as they test their mettle against physics, algebra, calculus and life science questions that would leave many adults scratching their heads in puzzlement.

Thousands of kids from around the country entered this season of Nickelodeon’s Genius, but only 16 teams will get through to the final stages, including four ‘wild card’ teams.

Nickelodeon’s Genius is powered by ABSA MegaU and supported by the Department of Basic Education (DBE) and the Department of Science and Technology (DST).

The ultimate winners of the contest will receive the amazing prize of a R100 000 ABSA MegaU account for each member of the team, an unforgettable visit to NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, USA and a trip to Universal Studios.

The winning schools will also receive books and educational material worth R30 000, courtesy of Cambridge Publishing.

The quarter-finals will be airing on Nickelodeon this Friday, May 26, at 2:45pm where the three students will fight to make it into the semi-finals.
